About this Session

High-quality early childhood education positively impacts child outcomes and matters a great deal. Teaching approaches and curricula that address and nurture the whole child function as crucial components of these impactful high-quality programs. The whole-child approach fosters all areas of children’s development and learning—from social–emotional and cognitive skills to literacy, math, and science understanding—and offers a powerful, supportive approach as preschool children transition to kindergarten.

Watch a webinar exploring the whole-child philosophy, why this approach is so important to ensuring that children are excited and engaged lifelong learners, and the positive effect it has on children’s academic and social–emotional gains. We will discuss what this approach looks like in action and share best practices, focusing in particular on the transition into kindergarten.
